Jeffrey Bronken was piloting the plane about 4 a.m. when it hit power lines before crashing nose-first into a median of a six-lane street.

The father and daughter were traveling to Florida for spring break, along with Katherine Bronken's softball teammate, 15-year-old Keyana Linbo. She survived the crash, but remains hospitalized.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the crash.

    A Brooklyn woman who is seven months pregnant released photos that she said show an NYPD officer putting her in a choke hold as she was being arrested for grilling on the sidewalk outside her home.  Rosean Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct on Saturday and her husband Moses was arrested for obstructing government business, a criminal charge. It's the latest in a string of reported choke holds by police officers. The move is not allowed under NYPD policy.

    A New Jersey Transit commuter train that became disabled just outside the Hudson River tunnel in Manhattan on Tuesday has been removed. 1,000 passengers were on board when the Northeast Corridor train became stuck, according to NJ Transit officials. A rescue train was attached to the disabled train and removed to Penn Station about an hour behind schedule. It is not clear what caused the mechanical problem. There are residual delays on NJT trains into and out of Penn Station.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
